Western Mountaineering Badger Super MF
Temperature Rating: 15 F
Weight: 2lbs 13 oz (with overfill)
Price Paid: $450
This is an awesome bag. I do a lot of research and trial and error in order to purchase gear.
The Badger replaced a Marmot Pinnacle (15f) bag after it disappointed me in mid-20f temps. The Badger is about the same weight and packing size but will keep you warm to at least 15f.
The Micro Fiber shell is more water resistant than the material used on the Pinnacle. In all honesty the Pinnacle is slightly softer material but the difference is negligible.
While WM makes some of the highest quality sleeping bags, they do not put any small features such as glow in the dark zipper pulls, loops to hang the bag with, or pockets for small items like headlamps. These are the ONLY drawbacks.
All in all I would highly recommend this bag over any other that I have tried. The small nice features that the Marmot had didn't keep me any warmer.
I will certainly be purchasing another WM product in the future when the time comes to get another sleeping bag. I'm sold on the quality and durability of their bags.
Order it from Hermit's Hut online and get a bag right from the factory with free overfill if you like! I am not affiliated in any way other than being a satisfied customer with Hermit's Hut.

Very happy with this purchase. Very light and roomy. I'm a little over 6'and 230 lbs. so I paid close attention to the sizing (girth and foot box) and that's why I chose the 6'6" Badger.
V.durable and rugged. Camped/hiked two weeks through Nova Scotia, Gros Morne Nat. Park in Newfoundland and on up to L’Anse aux Meadows and across to Labrador.
Dries quickly (morning dew was VERY heavy) and still looks new! Maybe a little thin on temp. rating but I sleep w/o layering so I just add a liner on really cool nights.
Now I'm looking at the Kodiak for some cold weather camping!!!
